You can edit the application tabs on your Facebook Page in several ways. You can change the tab names, change the tab images, delete tabs, and change the order of your tabs.

    Facebook displays a dialog box asking whether you’re sure you want to remove the app.

You can’t remove some Facebook apps, such as Video, Notes, or Photos, from your Page. These core apps are instrumental to the Facebook experience, and Facebook developed them internally.
